gloryaccordy is cool... so far.
I never understood this business model. I've been using Imgur but I'll bet they will go down too. If someone could make a service I could load my photos to as easily as Imgur I'd pay. The death of Imagestation was DEVASTATING, I'm still reeling from the loss of all those photos.

Good point and a deterrent for others too. Who wants to upload years of photos just to have them go down again. Personally I think sites (like this one) should host images. Make it a Gold membership required thing where folks pay $20 a year etc. and enforce rules where images must be below a size limit. Serious members will bite, but they'll only pay so much.

Forums go down too

Best bet is to probably buy your own domain and load photos to/from it, and back them up offline. Thankfully Photobucket gives you the option to download all your photos. They are definitely circling the drain.

I suppose another option is to go with a host backed by a legit company. Flickr is backed by Yahoo, Google Photos is backed by Google. Those probably aren't going anywhere and are very easy to sync with. But if ALL a company does is host photos.... tread lightly

Yea I need to download all my PB pictures.

I cant believe they went to a subscription service.

I actually started using Flickr to host images for my 2013 EX MRT, because I could not stand PB layout and unresponsiveness any longer.

I had deleted my Flickr years ago but when they started offering 1TB free, and I started my Photography business, I figured having a place to store 1 TB of photos in an emergency would be good to have.

I have about 300 pictures on there currently. On PB, I have 1600 pictures.

I just realized that my DIY for the S2k antenna and the write up for how to use photoshop are hosted on PB.

Deev, if I remember, and get a minute, ill transfer all those images to my flickr for you.
